West Brom launch bid to sign Premier League striker

West Brom are still in the market for a new striker and could turn their attention to Hull City forward Abel Hernandez, according to The Mirror.

The Baggies opened their new Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win away to Crystal Palace, with Salomon Rondon netting the winner for Tony Pulis’ men.

Hernandez was also on the scoresheet for Hull, with the Uruguayan netting as the newly promoted side defeated champions Leicester City 2-1.

West Brom are believed to be ready to allow tempestuous forward Saido Berahino leave the club this summer and are in the market to replace him.

A deal to land Diafra Sakho from West Ham fell through due to the African failing a medical and Pulis’ side are believed to be ready to turn their attention to Hull’s Hernandez.

The newly promoted side are having financial difficulties and the Baggies may well benefit from this in their pursuit of the South American.
